The first voice I heard this morning was Sarah Kennedy’s telling me that the actor Christopher Cazanove was critically ill in hospital with Septicaemia. It rocked me to my boots. When I hear news like that it feels someone has stabbed me in my raw gaping wound. It was particularly poignant as i’ve been reading some of the wise,loving stuff he and his then wife , Angahard Rees , wrote after the sudden death of their son, Linford.
It has been at the forefront of my mind all day. Even though I’m consumed by pain it doesn’t stop me feeling other peoples, in fact it hilights it . I wouldn’t wish the devastation that Septicaemia can bring , on anybody else.
